This week, Upper School 1 students had an amazing opportunity to support The Help Group's Special Olympics Field Events that were hosted on campus.

The Special Olympics Young Athletes program focuses on fun, energetic activities for children ages 2-7 years old with intellectually-different abilities. US1 students facilitated the Young Athletes' experience from arrival to field stations to awards.

The Special Olympians were warmly welcomed with a Tunnel of Love in front of Mirman School.

Mirman students participated in an initial workshop to learn about the work of the Special Olympics and to discuss the celebratory nature of this event. We were delighted to host a convivial event in the spirit of collaboration and in support of physical fitness!
